Worcester Warriors will be without Dale Rasmussen for Sunday's Aviva Premiership clash with Saracens after he was suspended for a week for a dangerous tackle.

The incident occurred during the newly-promoted side's opening-weekend victory over Sale Sharks at Sixways, with the 34-year-old centre escaping sanction for the challenge at the time.

However, Rasmussen was subsequently cited and, after pleading guilty to the offence at a Rugby Football Union (RFU) disciplinary hearing on Wednesday evening, he has been banned for seven days, thus ruling him out of this weekend's trip to Vicarage Road.
